THD Wednesday Challenge: Reach For The Sky

Another Wednesday means another challenge. This week we want you to stretch every hour, from 10am to 5pm.  THD Wednesday Challenge

Sitting at a desk wreaks havoc on your spine and hips, not to mention how exhausting it is even though you aren’t physically doing anything. So take a few minutes every hour to refresh your mind and body with some light stretching. Aim for 5-10 stretches. If you need some ideas, click here.

THD Wednesday Challenge: Affirm Others

And we’re back! Several weeks ago, we challenged you to break the cycle of negative thinking by complimenting yourself. This week we are challenging you to compliment or affirm other people, at least three of them.THD Wednesday Challenge

You never know what impact your kind words may have on someone else. A compliment or affirmation, no matter how seemingly minor, could mean the difference between a bad day or a great day for someone else. We all enjoy compliments and affirmation, whether it is about having a good hair day or succeeding on a project or goal we have put so many hours into. So choose three people throughout your day and make their day a little brighter.

Feel free to let us know how it goes by using our Twitter hashtag #THDWednesdayChallenge or leaving a comment here.  Zee (@zeethd) and Suze (@suzethd) enjoy your feedback.  And you can join us on Facebook too!

We look forward to seeing you!


THD Wednesday Challenge: Climb The Stairs to Success

This week we are headed UP! We want you to find a flight of stairs with at least 10 steps & walk up once each hour (just walk up twice if your flight has less than 10 steps). THD Wednesday Challenge

It’s important to take breaks throughout the day to get the blood flowing. And walking stairs will work your quads and glutes, important leg muscles as we’ve learned.

Keep in touch with us by using our Twitter hashtag #THDWednesdayChallenge or leaving a comment.  Zee (@zeethd) and Suze (@suzethd) will be around and love to hear how you are doing!  And you can join us on Facebook too!

We look forward to seeing you!


THD Wednesday Challenge: Lunge Your Way Through Hump Day

Another Wednesday, another challenge. This week we want you to do some lunges. 1 set of 5 reps each hour (10am-5pm) to be specific. But no cheating! We’re talking about 5 per leg each hour. THD Wednesday Challenge

Lunges are a fantastic lower body exercise. They work your glutes (What you need to work for that nice tush!), quads, and hamstrings. If these muscles are strong, you will have less knee and ankle issues, as these muscles do a lot to stabilize your legs and hips. This is especially important for you walkers and runners out there!

Don’t know how to do a lunge? Check out this demonstration from SparkPeople!

Please check in with us through our Twitter hashtag #THDWednesdayChallenge. We love to hear how you are doing.  Zee (@zeethd) and Suze (@suzethd) will be there!  And you can join us on Facebook too!

We look forward to seeing you!


THD Wednesday Challenge: Eat Your Fruits and Veggies

The Wednesday Challenge is here once again! This week, we want you to eat 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables. THD Wednesday Challenge

According to ChooseMyPlate.gov, adults need 2 cups of fruit and 2.5-3 cups of vegetables every day. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of vitamins and fiber. They can also provide extra hydration, for those who aren’t big fans of drinking water.

Getting 5 servings a day can sometimes be tricky. Everyone has different ways of getting their five a day. One tip for getting 5 or more servings is to have at least one fruit or vegetable with each meal and to have a fruit or veg as a snack as well. Eating a little throughout the day is much easier than trying to get all of your servings in one meal.

What are your favorite tips for getting your 5 servings a day?

Remember to check in with us through our Twitter hashtag #THDWednesdayChallenge so we know how you are doing.  Zee (@zeethd) and Suze (@suzethd) will be munching on fruits and veggies with you!  And you can join us on Facebook too!

We look forward to seeing you!


THD Wednesday Challenge: Take A Walk

It’s that time again! Time for another Wednesday Challenge. This week, take a couple of minutes each hour, 10am-5pm, and take a short walk. 200 steps each hour is the goal, but you don’t have to be exact. A two minute walk should get you there. Take a short break from your desk and do a lap or two around the office, or step outside for some fresh air.  THD Wednesday Challenge

Staring at a computer screen all day can be draining. Taking short breaks to stretch your legs and your brain, can refresh and rejuvenate you, making you more alert and productive. Enjoy the short breather!

As always, check in with us through our Twitter hashtag #THDWednesdayChallenge to let us know how you are doing.  Zee (@zeethd) and Suze (@suzethd) will be there!  And you can join us on Facebook too!

We look forward to seeing you!
